We are who we have been.
We are who we are.
We are who we are becoming.
How can we become a new version of ourselves, when the old version is so strongly imprinted in our mental and physical DNA? After a big weight loss or physical transformation, the old demons that want to overeat, sleep in, and make habitually unhealthy choices are still calling out.
There is another part to change and that is stepping into the shoes of the new person that you’ve become and allowing yourself a true metamorphosis. This can only happen if the changes are based in choices that truly feed you in a multitude of ways — energetically, spiritually, satisfactorily, and fun.
When the old you tries to sabotage the new you, (come back to the five and dime) you must proclaim louder and stronger who the new you is and what you are all about.
Make a list.
“Top ten things I love about my healthier self.”
Keep it in on your desktop or in an underwear drawer, somewhere you can see and be reminded. Pull it out when you need that extra boost.
You got this. You know you do.
